TOWN OF TRENTON — A 6-year-old girl was hospitalized after getting bumped by a pickup truck on Route 12 in Trenton Sunday morning, according to law enforcement officials.
Sheriff’s deputies said a 6-year-old girl was attempting to get into a GMC pickup truck in the parking lot of Cindy’s Diner on Route 12 at about 11 a.m. Sunday. Deputies said the driver, 60-year-old Daniel Millick, of Remsen, was not aware that the girl was not yet seated in the vehicle and he began to back out of the space slowly.
